In late 2019, RIBA officially opened an office in Shanghai, China. Over the past two years, we have connected China's architecture with the international architecture world and highlighted the achievements of outstanding Chinese architects through design competitions, academic activities, and communication platforms.

The mission of RIBA's work in China is to bring together the thinking and practice of contemporary architecture in China into the global architectural knowledge system and show the achievements of Chinese architects and their importance in promoting global architectural excellence.
